Our governors, have three main roles:
To provide strategic direction for the work we do at BDB and its improvement.
To support, monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of the work we do in school.
To hold the school to account for the standards achieved and the quality of education.
Bishop David Brown School follows a portfolio model of governance, this model means specific governors have a remit of focussing on designated areas of the School and ensuring they not only support the School but hold them to account.
The following table highlights the structure of governance at BDB.
